Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:068: php

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the php package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:068 (php).


Stefan Esser discovered a remotely exploitable vulnerability in PHP where a
remote attacker could trigger a memory_limit request termination in places where
an interruption is unsafe. This could be used to execute arbitrary code.
As well, Stefan Esser also found a vulnerability in the handling of permited tags
within PHP's strip_tags() function. This could lead to a number of XSS issues on
sites that rely on strip_tags()
however, this only seems to affect the Internet
Explorer and Safari browsers.
The updated packages have been patched to correct the problem and all users are
encouraged to upgrade immediately.
